What Song Is In The Five Nights At Freddy's Teaser Trailer?

After years of fans clamoring for a film adaptation, "Five Nights at Freddy's" finally gets the treatment it deserves. The first trailer suggests the movie will be fairly faithful to the games, which is pretty easy to do considering it's mainly about a security guard who finds himself in trouble when a pizzeria's animatronics come to life and cause mayhem. The trailer may be less than a minute in length, but it manages to get some pretty creepy imagery across as well as offer a glimpse into Freddy and the gang before they went all murder-y.

At the 0:07 mark in the trailer, viewers can see Freddy and his friends lip-sync to a song the way you might see at a Chuck E. Cheese. While most of the trailer has spooky, ominous music, the band actually does briefly perform an actual well-known song, and it's "Talking in Your Sleep" by The Romantics. While it may seem like a random needle drop, there's a chance this song symbolizes more of the "Five Nights at Freddy's" mythos than viewers may initially think.

The song could hint at the Bite of '83

"Talking in Your Sleep" came off the 1983 album "In Heat" from The Romantics. It's an intriguing choice because, as "Five Nights at Freddy's" fans know, 1983 holds special significance to the games. It's in reference to the Bite of '83 in the games where a group of older kids, as well as a young Michael Afton, try to scare a crying child. They convince him to put his head into Freddy's mouth, which clamps shut. It's seen as the first event where Freddy was something more than a simple singing animatronic, so it's possible the band singing "Talking in Your Sleep" in the trailer suggests that scene takes place close to the infamous event. It's even possible it could be depicted on-screen, although it would have to be toned down, seeing how the film will have a PG-13 rating.

Another theory is that "Talking in Your Sleep" could foreshadow how all of the film's events turn out to be a dream in the end, but that seems unlikely, especially if Universal wants to expand this property into a film franchise. All will be revealed, jump scares and all, for newcomers and long-time fans of "Five Nights at Freddy's," when the film comes out in theaters and on Peacock simultaneously on October 27.
